Joie de Vivre
Rural Retreat, Red Hill
Get amongst the VINES
we love this because..
It’s our dream to escape to the country. Even if it is only for a weekend!
JOIE DE VIVRE is our dream escape to your own little piece of paradise with picturesque 10-acre views in Red Hill, in the heart of the peninsula’s wine region.
When we drive down the quiet country lane with the tree-lined driveway we know we have the most relaxing weekend waiting for us. As interiors addicts, we feel like we have walked into a magazine cover. What to look at first? The marvellous french inspired cast iron fireplace or the facing chesterfield sofas or the view in the background.
We really never want to leave, we walk the dog in the grounds and sit on the jetty in the dam and ponder the meaning of life while watching the fishes swim by. The kids are completely engrossed in the playground, tennis court or basketball…so many things to do.
The property is located right next door to Main Ridge Estate and across from Red Hill Cheese, two wonderful gourmet destinations that we don’t even need to get in the car and drive to. The vines for Main Ridge Estate are in fact at the back door of this property.

What fun! a new house to visit that lets four-legged friends like me sleep inside.
Yay! a huge garden…but no fences. I will have to be on my best behaviour and not wander off. Love the trees and bushes, there are lots of interesting smells. Are those possums in the trees?
And there’s a special basket just for me. No way! What’s in there? Ooh, ooh! a treat from PAWDINKUM. I LOVE THIS PLACE.

“We stayed at Joie de Vivre for two nights after Melbourne's lockdown. It was a great getaway and the house was very clean and well presented. Even better that the allow dogs as they loved running around the property. The house was in a great location, in close proximity to nearby wineries and Red Hill Cheese. Would definitely recommend and would be great to come back during the winter so we could use the fireplace.”

Joie de Vivre met every expectation. Immaculately presented, beautiful scenery and peaceful location. Would definitely recommend and stay again. And even a welcome gift in the fridge. Thank you :)

The moment you walk in the front door you feel relaxed and at peace. The big windows overlooking the beautiful gardens, the sitting areas for all family members to relax, the comfortable bedding. The house has something for everyone(including little people and pets). It’s close to all the great Mornington peninsula wineries but honestly the house is so beautiful you won’t want to leave.

This is the most idillic property to base yourself in Red Hill. The outlook is sublime and the surrounding areas simply gorgeous. The local wine and food was delicious. We will be back.
